The Maildir will be created py postfix when the first email is send to the account. So send an email first and then try to fetch it.

Did you follow this tutorial: http://www.howtoforge.com/virtual_po..._quota_courier to the letter? Because it doesn't even mention a table policy. I guess you have that table somewhere in your Postfix configuration files...
